Diversity and Inclusion Champion Certification

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION CHAMPION CERTIFICATION

A mix of attributes, within a workforce that in significant ways affect how people think, feel, and behave at work, and their acceptance, work performance, satisfaction, or progress in the organization is defined as diversity.

Diversity and Inclusion have also been described in the context of the varied perspectives and approaches to work, that members of different identity groups bring. While demographic diversity has been the focus in the past, today, diversity of thought is the new focus, and since diversity is the new economic imperative, all successful organizations have it on their agenda.

Inclusion, which is a new priority, is defined as the extent to which individuals can participate because they are enabled to contribute fully. The degree to which employees perceive that they are respected, and are esteemed members of the workforce, by experiencing treatment that satisfies their needs for belongingness and uniqueness is a widely accepted definition of inclusion.

Diversity focuses primarily on the composition of groups based on demographics, thought, education, choices, etc. Inclusion, on the other hand, emphasizes encouraging participation, and belongingness and creating a psychologically safe environment for all employees. It evolves beyond merely appreciating diversity, and towards leveraging and integrating diversity into everyday work life. Despite being distinct concepts both Diversity and Inclusion are interrelated.
